When it comes to your business, you can never be too careful.
Whether you, or a member of team, were to accidentally delete an important document, or you are faced with something more sinister, like a fire or Ransomware attack, you need to ensure that you can still get access your data.
We use the 3-2-1 Rule, advocated by Veeam
So what is the 3-2-1 Rule?
Three steps to become compliant …
Step One – keep 3 copies of data, your primary data set and at least 2 backups, in case anything should go wrong. Access to data is essential, to the smooth running of your business, so make sure that it is well protected!
Step Two – store on 2 different types of media
What would you do if there was a common fault, preventing you from accessing your data? To negate risk, store copies on 2 different types of media e.g. keep primary data stored on a server and additionally backup to Network Attached Storage (NAS).
Step Three – keep 1 backup offsite
Protect against an unlikely event, such as a fire or flood by backing up to the Cloud. Cloud Storage offers the ideal offsite storage solution, it’s convenient, cost effective and requires no manual intervention.
